Man injured in hit and run

Enderby man possibly facing charges following hit-and-run

Charges under either the Criminal Code or Motor Vehicle Act will be considered against an Enderby man following a strange incident Friday.

Police were called just before 9 p.m. to a report of a vehicle striking a pedestrian on Russell Avenue.

The driver fled the scene, failing to offer any help.

“A 20-year-old male pedestrian suffered non-life-threatening injuries to his ankle,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

The investigation led police to a suspect, who fled from police while they were trying to conduct a traffic stop on his vehicle.

A 25-year-old man was later arrested, and released from custody on a promise to appear in court in October.

“Generally speaking, when you have hit-and-run with a person or an occupied vehicle, and don’t render assistance, charges go Criminal Code, but not always,” said Molendyk, who added there are indications the pedestrian and people in the vehicle knew each other.
